Homosexuality and the Christian Church
Have you heard? The issue of homosexuality is bringing division to the Christian church in recent years. The Episcopal church now allows the ordination of openly gay clergy, but not until after a big fight within the denomination. The Methodist church had a big international denominational vote on allowing same sex marriage, just this year. The measure did not pass, mostly because of Methodist leaders in Africa… putting them at odds with the majority of Methodist leaders in America. It’s a contentious issue, and we’re going to “go there” for a few weeks on the Faith Debate, beginning this week.
